I think it's great too. Had a few problems with Office 2000, which are now fixed, and am still having video problems with Max Payne, but other than that, it works great! Heck, I think my games run better in XP than they ever did in Win9x. As soon as I get Max Payne to run properly, or finish the game, ME is out, and I'm going to XP only.
Well being a XP site I expected a good response for it !!!
and apart from the compatability probs I have, I have to say that XP rox big times but.....
1.Not being able to use my Wheel is hard
2.my mouse going erratic in q3 is even harder
so i had to reformat and put Win98 back for now, and Im going to put XP on me other pc instead and use that for surfing music, dvd etc oh and the odd bit of burning and a little work here and there
after saying than does anyone Know how I can remove the Partion from my HDD that XP created instead of the Fat 32 system Ntsc or something its still there and seems to be holding 7 gigs of HDD lol......
thanx for all yer responses im still XPing it up on the old p3 600 upstairs
XP runs as well as Win2k did on my system. The games I've tried all run well as before. The themes are kind of "fisher price" looking but you get used to them. XP uses colours brilliantly.

The only tweak program I have installed so far is Tweak UI. Norton Antivirus and Zone Alarm run in the background 24/7 without any problems. I've had uptimes of over 3-4 weeks with it. They'd probably be longer if I didn't constantly mess with installs of drivers and new programs that require reboots.
I think MS needs to leave more things optional, but I can't see them doing that in my lifetime.
XP is a bit faster than 2k, but there are some bugs that I don't remember in the betas and RC's. Once Service Pack 1 comes out, we should see problems resolved.
EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
